    Seriously, everyone in this country seems to hate Birmingham.

    People always saying how it's a ****hole or how dumb we sound with our accents.

    What have we done to deserve this ill treatment?

    Birmingham deserves respect as the Second City of the UK.

    People claim you are dumb not because of your accents but because of your grammar.

    I have been in Birmingham about 3 times of which 2 times were to get to the airport. When you drive past the city or enter it you can literally see the whole city, it looks so grey and grim. The look of the place makes me shiver I'd hate to live there...

    Plus, the British will moan at anything - the Olympics is one of the greatest sporting events ever and we still complain. We are one of the richest countries in the world and we still complain.

    Went there for a gig at the LG Arena in May, spent the following day in the city (namely the Bullring area). Seemed quite nice.

    Because its a dump, in the politest way possible... there may be some nice areas but the majority id avoid like the plague.
    Also being Britains second largest city doesnt mean its nice/good etc. just means more over crowding

    I really like Birmingham!

    People appreciate different architectural styles I suppose. Brindley place/Edgbaston are lovely! I really like Digbeth...

    Well if that's how you think, then I know why a lot of people would hate it. Either Edinburgh, Cardiff or Belfast should be the "Second City of the UK", particularly because they all host national legislatures, similar to London and most other countries.

    In my experience, when most people ridicule the accent and attempt to imitate it they actual do a Black Country accent.
